Machine tool manufacturers: why work with an independent CAD/CAM software vendor?

If a machine tool manufacturer or reseller has decided to include a CAD/CAM software in their offering, what kind of questions should they ask themselves before working with an independent software vendor? Plus, what are the specific characteristics of Alma’s partnership approach?

Continuous laser cutting of coil with DIMECO and Alma: this partnership is on a roll!

Specialist in production systems that use coil, DIMECO launched a few year ago an innovative system allowing continuous laser cutting. This solution is controlled using Alma nesting software and has been adopted by companies in different sectors in several countries.

Why is off-line programming vital in a robotized welding project?

If you are intending to invest in a robotized welding cell, you may be considering whether it’s worthwhile investing also in an off-line programming software to control your new robot. OLP is more than just an alternative to conventional programming by teaching pendant. This solution has many advantages which in fact make it irreplaceable.

We are also optimizing cutting of 3D blocks!

In many industrial sectors it is necessary to cut parallelepipedic parts from large blocks of material. For applications where the groups of parts to produce are particularly large, it is necessary or even mandatory to use a cutting optimization software.

Robotized cutting of tubes and profiles: a niche market occupied by experts!

In partnership with robotics integrators, in particular Daihen Varstroj in Slovenia, Alma has adapted its off-line programming software to robotized cutting of tubes and profiles. This is a niche market which requires a highly sophisticated hardware + software solution.

Improved algorithms for easy import and cleaning of dirty DXF/DWG

The quality of DXF or DWG geometries is a recurring problem when it comes to exploiting CAD files for CAM programming. Alma applicative software and web applications include advanced functions for automatic cleaning of DXF or DWG geometries.

Why is Alma the Cutting CAD/CAM market leader for shipbuilding

1982 is the starting point not only for our long-standing collaboration with the Chantiers de l’Atlantique shipyard, but also for deployment of our Cutting CAD/CAM software for shipbuilding right around the world.
